Default [Q] Personal tips for a (soon to be) Note II user?

Well, I'm no stranger to large phones. I currently have my trusty Dell Streak Mini with me running along with DSC but my contract's coming to an end and I have made the choice on getting the Note II in about a week or two. Seemed right considering I couldn't let go of my 5 inch screen and Best Buy was giving away $50 gift cards left and right allowing to pay $50 less for for the phone. I've been reading up a lot on the phone and have just been wondering what exactly are some of your own personal tips you find handy with the device? I'm a bit of a power user so I like learning neat ways of doing stuff

Believe me, I'd do it in a heartbeat but my contract doesn't end until the end of next week

If you go to an AT&T store they will let you upgrade up to 14 days in advance. At least that's what they've told me.

Att stores don't do price match and their prices are usually higher than best buy or anyone else. In other words, buy your phone at best buy or some place other than att stores.

That's not true, Att is a lot cheaper then best buy if your buying out right. Now on contract it just depends on who has a better deal for a two year agreement.

Well after you purchase the phone this "GALAXY Note II User's Digest" on the play store has some good tips.

ALso there are a number of youtube videos showing tips.

Put it in a case. This phone can be pretty fragile.

Use the volume increase mod, or the latest Perseus kernel to gain access to audio tweaks. The headphone jack by default is a bit quieter than other phones (well, it's quiet for me anyway).
